Best Synthetic Eyelash Extensions Product Reviews

Because a set of quality false eyelashes are a cornerstone of a classy, sexy eye makeup look, it's important to make a good decision about which set to buy. Let's start with on of the most popular products.

If you are going to focus on cruelty-free eyelash extensions, but still want a natural product to glue to your face, then silk is a good way to go. This product offering by SVANLASHES is made of premium Korean silk and is a professional-level product. Let's break this product down.

  • 4 stars overall
  • 84% four stars or better
  • 100+ reviews
  • Length range from 8-14mm
  • 7 thickness sizes to choose from
    • .05 - .07 - .10 - .15 - .18 - .20 - .25
  • Professional quality - for salon use
  • C curl lashes are more curly than normal lashes
  • Available on PRIME
  • Requires eyelash extension glue
  • Cruelty-free
  • Natural, organic product

This product ticks a lot of boxes: cruelty-free, natural, a mix of lengths, thickness that you can specify, and it will be delivered quickly, and therefore is our number one recommendation.

This product offering by LK LANKIZ is very similar to the SVANLASHES product reviewed in #1 above, but is not made of a natural ingredient like silk, so lets see what's going on with these lashes.

  • 4.5 stars overall
  • 85% four stars or better
  • 60+ customer reviews
  • 3 sizes available in C curl: .07 - .15 - .20
  • Mixed tray of lengths from 8mm - 14mm
  • Easy to remove
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Cruelty-free
  • Requires eyelash extension glue
  • PolyButylene Terephthalate (PBT)
  •  Durable and can withstand solvents

The ingredient PBT is similar to polyester, so if you are into organics, this is not one. PBT is a man-created chemical based material. If you are okay with that, this is another cruelty-free product to take a look at.

For Madeline and I, natural products are our preference so we would still prefer silk over PBT.

Another silk-based product offering from SCALA fits our desire for natural products. This product is similar to #1 above but sells at a lower price point, but for a good reason. This is a wholesale product and is for professional salons with high volume.  Lets look at the details.

  • 4.5 stars overall
  • 85% four stars or better
  • 169 customer reviews
  • Silk
  • Order by length, not c curl size
  • Each tray is the same length
  • Truly for professionals only
  • Requires eyelash extension glue
  • wholesale - large quantities

This set of false eyelashes is great for the beginner to start with. You get a set of 10 pre-knotted and feathered eyelashes that are easy to put on, and easy to take off. Let's dive in to this offering.

  • 3.5 stars overall
  • 61% four stars or better
  • 160+ reviews overall
  • Synthetic fibers
  • 10 pairs of pre-knotted lashes
  • Great for beginners
  • Requires eyelash glue

Madeline and I suggest that you consider starting with an easy to use product iike this offering from EMAXDESIGN until you learn to use the extension glue well enough to buy individual lashes that are more for professional stylists.


The first three products we review in this article are primarily for professional stylists or those who wear eyelash extensions pretty much every day. The EMAXDESIGN product is more for consumers who want to put on their own extensions and wear them on special occasions.

Madeline and I would suggest you go with a silk product like the #1 SVANLASHES or #3 SCALA products above. We like the idea of a natural product on our faces.
